    Health & Safety: All in all i think this school is very safe. It would be slightly better if the school nurse were present at the school everyday. She is only there part time, so sometimes, if you got sick or something happened, you just had to suck it up or just call your parents and go home.

    Food: We would basically have the same things every week. It always included some starch laden entre with a vegetable, maybe another starch, and sometimes a fruit. It was generally pretty heavy.

    Administration & Policies: There was a rule while i was there that we were not allowed to have our phones out at any time throughout the day. The intention behind the policy was good, but their implementation of the policy was slightly crazy. If they even saw a glimpse of our phone, they would demand it and take it to the office and we would not get it back for a week. I remember my freshman year, i was getting off of the bus and putting my phone into my pocket (it was already turned off and i has popped the battery out of the back since it had a habit on coming on randomly) and the assistant principle saw it, and he took it away from me.

    Sports & Fitness: We would often hold pep rallies before big games, and it would get everyone pumped and excited about the games. The games that we had pep rallies for, generally showed the greatest crown support. And at the football games, we had a student section where all of the students would sit together and scream and cheer for our classmates who were on the field.

    Teachers: There are some tough teachers, but its only because they teach difficult subjects. I loved all of my teachers, in fact i go back to see them sometimes. There are teachers there that taught me weird, yet memorable, ways to remember things, and those are how I am getting by in some of my classes in college.
